to increase any tax rates. how can it be that we have the rates the president is proposing back in the clinton years and the had the longest period of uninterrupted growth in the nation's history, 23 million jobs created, would balance the budget and were paying down the debt. if those tax rates are so needed to job creation, how is it that we have those very rates that the country was doing the best it has ever done? how can it be? the ideological rigidity is not fact-based. it is not fact-based. one of the things they are saying now is that if you go to a top rate of 39.6, that will have enormous consequences on economic growth. cbo has studied that issue. they have told us it would change economic growth by 1/10 of 1%. extending the tax cut would add -- extending all the middle class tax cuts would add 1.3% to economic growth. the overwhelming driver here is extending tax relief for the middle class. at least those making below $250,000. i go to another issue. there are income tax rates currently at 35% tax rate. what about people who are paying a rate of 15%? -- how about the unearned whe
candidate will succeed hillary clinton to serve as america's top diplomat. so what can we expect from him in that role? for answers, i spoke to the former u.s. state department spokesman. of course, americans united nations ambassador, susan rice, was the top favorite. how effective will john kerry be? >> he has great spirits. in a sense, the obama administration has used him very effectively in the past four years. he was first on the ground in copenhagen with the climate change negotiations. he was inserted into the troubled relationship the united states has with pakistan. he has had effective conversations with president karzai, and he did some yeoman's work when it came to negotiations with south sudan. he has made his mark already in terms of conflict reduction, crisis mitigation. i think he will carry that experience into his new position. >> nevertheless, some would say he has enormous shoes to fill. hillary clinton has almost got a cult following among some people. how is his style going to be different to hers? >> you are talking about a man who ran for president in 2004. >> she
. here's green shoots we saw emerging this year. hillary clinton, soon to be a private citizen but with a future presidential run you can already see. the census bureau's announcement that the american birth were the majority non-white and the fact at that hurricane center got all the way to letter t, way beyond the usual number. helene. >> the last two are gloom and doom. i'm going with the browning of america. that's interesting, that's huge. you saw it starting to play out in the election and this is such a much more diverse country now and i'm wildly curious to see how that plays out. chris: it's amazing how people are not aware of it. >> no, no, so many people think it's the same united states but that's what's always made this country so cool, it's the reason i could always thought have not gone anywhere else in the world as an african immigrant and end up on this show next to you. chris: americans, true in sports and other things, put in the best player. >> demographers tell us most american citizens will be part of groups we now think of are the minorities but i think i
either gone or demoted. this is direct quote from spokeswoman victoria knew land. secretary clinton accepted eric boss equal's decision to resign as effective up immediately. the other three individuals have been relieved of their current duties. all four individuals have been placed on administrative leave pending further action. the "new york post" is reporting those folks are still on the state department payroll. eric boswell who they said resigned did not resign and all four will be back to work before too long. >> they just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave americans. this is incredibly inept of the state department to think that it continue to fool the american public. pathetic. >> reporter: we've asked the state department about this and they have chosen so far not to clarify or deny any of it. keep in mind that right now, they're trying to transition from the clinton era to the kerry era. >> secretary clinton as you heard he
department come before the congress. meanwhile, secretary of state clinton remains out of sight recovering from this concushion that she apparently suffered when she fell down because she was diof dehydrated from the stomach virus or something. do we have any more details on how that happened or-- where did she hit her head? do we know? >> or when? >> when? well, it was last saturday that they decided that she-- this concussion was serious enough for her to warrant staying at home. but we don't believe it happened that day in particular. but the timing is, obviously, critical in terms of what you're talking about with benghazi because she was supposed to testify this past week. she's since indicated she's willing to do something, perhaps, in january with the senate foreign relations and house foreign affairs to answer some of the questions. but in the meantime, this report has come out, ben harshly critical of the state department, and the place is really sort of reeling. i mean, you have the top three security fors within diplomatic security forced out the door. and you've got a heck of a
in virginia. it was propose bided by bill clinton the year after the columbine shooting and they set up legislation called cops in the school program. has not been fully funded. a lot of schools don't have it. what we were saying is really the question that parents across this country are asking is how do we protect our kids? >> schieffer: a couple reactions. the president of the international association of police chiefs says, number one, this is totally impractical. he says he happens to be the chief in the freemont, california. he said if you put police officer in every school in freemont, he'd have to put half his police force there. we all know the budget constraints that all these governments are under. on the other side, the president of the national education association says we do not need guns in schools, period. >> well, they need protection. the kids need protection. bill clinton thought they needed protection. the israelis have tested it, and it works there. you know, what we've suggested that each school district and each school administrator look at the problem that they
was on the right so they could make obama look bad. at some point they will have to confront hillary clinton herself as the chief democrat in the country. when will they pivot? >>> if you're worried we'll soon be governed by sharia law, have no fear. republicans are keeping us safe from something that was never going to happen anyway. that and other low lights there 2012 in the "sideshow." >>> and finally my hopes for the upcoming year, especially from the president. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> massachusetts congressman ed markey announced today his candidacy for the united states senate seat held by john kerry who president obama has nominated for secretary of state. markey is a friend and respected guest on "hardball" and has been in the house since 1976. he's the dean of the massachusetts delegation, and he has the best values of anybody i know in politics. if he gets the democratic nomination for the senate, he could wind up running against scott brown who won the seat in 2010, then lost it last month. the special election is likely to take place this june. we'll be r
through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts elected in the house simply have not adapted to that reality. >> let me go to jonathan chait and the primal scream and the election president obama won, but you wouldn't know this in washington. doesn't it feel sometimes like one side experienced maybe a different election? >> they did. for the house republicans, they don't have to worry about public opinion. the house republicans got fewer votes than hou
hours of the close of the clinton administration back in 2001. his son, 30 years old, former child commander of a child army, emerges as the president and he remains in power up to this time. his daddy was supported by the rwandan, angolans, zimbabweania. when he got to power, he told them all, i will be the one who controls the natural resources of this country. after he is assassinated -- what attributes do you attribute to the sun as far as his leadership abilities? joseph kabila, who was recently elected in 2011, which many characterized as a rigged election -- what do we know about the current president, and why do we support leaders in africa to exploit their citizens and the poverty that in sue's makes them more susceptible -- ensues makes them more susceptible to extremist elements, like al-qaeda? you will receive 100 virgins when you do the suicide attack, and whatnot. how can we get ourselves out of this, america? somebody talk to me, please. >> i think you are right. this is part of a generation of african leaders that are not going to move their countries forward. this
and make sure it never happens again. there were recommendations that were made, and secretary clinton accepts all of them. we have to make sure that our diplomats or in places all around the world -- some of the places are very dangerous -- that they are protected. and congress has to do its part. i am troubled that the house has consistently low balled the monies for diplomatic security around the world and is constantly lowball anything to do with diplomacy around the world. moneys that have come out after negotiations between house and senate -- usually the senate had a higher amount of money. but the money that was agreed upon for both was much lower than had been requested. that is troubling. if congress is going to point the finger, we need to put our money where our mouth is. we need to make sure that our men and women who are in harm's also way all around the world to do such wonderful jobs, that we're protecting them and not doing this on the cheap. >> as we learned in the hearings and report, requests for more security could have been funded within the existing budget and we
ran on anti-american level. arguing against the united states. speaking of clinton as hillary clinton, secretary of state organizing the demonstrations against him. then in the policy world. supporting iran against us, on the nuclear issue. supporting assad in genocide war against his people. last week he supplied diesel to the tanks and the forces which were requiring it. this is a guy, our policy is complete failure in respect russia. >> doug: a minute left. brief comment on the death of four-star general normon schwarzkopf. >> a great soldier. we treb left hook in 1991 in the 100-hours war that got iraqis out of kuwait. >> hail mary pass. >> didn't do as well in cease-fire negotiations which allowed them to keep the helicopters, which used to kill shiites. >> charles? >> he did, i mean he was a war hero in vietnam days. tremendously successful leading desert storm. but in addition, i think it was a seminole event in our history that it restored the prestige, and the affection that americans have of the american military. which suffered horribly in the vietnam days and '70s. even in
. that is a concern that's expressed. again, you go back, though, through history. president clinton started the cops program where you have resource officers who are armed in the schools as a result of that. there is partial funding, but it's very limited and cut back and insufficient, obviously. it's going to take over $2 billion if you put a federal funded program for an armed person at every school. i think there's voluntary programs to look at if you have trained people, and we want to set up a model training for this. it should be an option that the local school board finally makes the decision. i can understand skepticism, but i think that school safety is the debate. i think it is terrific that the nra is willing to fund experts and st. louolutions free of cos the schools to hopefully create a voluntary program. >> it's more than skepticism. i want to read you two reactions to what the nra had to say. the first from mayor michael bloomberg who said they, meaning the nra, offered a paranoid vision of a more dangerous and violent america where everyone is armed and no place is same. the nra as'
hillary clinton finally expected to return to work next week. she spent the last three weeks recovering from a stomach virus and concussion that forced her to miss her date to testify in the benghazi attack that killed four americans in september. lawmakers say until hillary clinton testifies, they'll hold up john kerry has confirmation for secretary of state. >> eric: joining us now is sout carolina congressman and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticize
he suffered a series of complications from bronchitis. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton will return to work soon. for the last few weeks, she had to slow down because of a stomach virus and a concussion that she sustained after fainting. she canceled an overseas trip as well as testimony before congress about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. clinton is preparing to step aside as secretary in the coming weeks. >>> a winter storm getting ready to pass through the area this weekend. road crews are getting ready as well, preparing for a full deployment. in maryland that means 2500 trucks out in full force today salting the roads and preparing plows for tomorrow. vdot and d dot will make their plans today for how they'll respond to the coming storm as that storm moves in. not everybody is upset about the impending snow. >> i love the snow. >> you're not scared of the snow? >> i used to shovel every day. i like waking up in the morning, you have to shovel off your car, to go to work. for me, it's actually i am looking forward to see the snow. >> we're going
of state hillary clinton will return to work next week after being sidelined by illness for the past few weeks. she's kept a low profile after suffering from a stomach virus and then a concussion she reportedly sustained after fainting. she had to cancel an overseas trip as well as testimony before congress about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. clinton is preparing to step down as secretary of state in the coming weeks. >>> this morning, two of the three men accused of brutally beating a capitol hill man this summer will be in court. police say tommy branch and sunny kuti attacked and robbed thomas maslin in august. maslin suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma nearly two months. the third suspect, michael moore, waived his right to a hearing. >>> this morning, four children, one as yun as 12, face charges for carjacking. the virginia couple was outside their home in manassas wednesday night when the group held them at gunpoint. when police caught up to them, a 13-year-old girl was behind wheel. the suspects tried to get away leaving the minivan in drive
department did this go? did it reach the 7th floor of the state department, ie, hillary clinton's office. we don't know that. >> dave: and that's why people want to hear from secretary of state hillary clinton, and hopefully recover from the concussion, from the flu to give the answers. there were four americans who died. >> clayton: great point. >> we have other news for you, get to it, if you're just waking up, after a second round of voting it looks like egypt now has a new constitution. you can see supporters of president mohammed morsi casting ballots for the islamic drafted confusion and reports that the constitution had passed and morsi says it's establishing democracy in egypt, but the some say it's nothing more than a power grab. is a serial killer on the loose in michigan this morning, concerns after police made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they have found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas for dna testing and investigators want to determine if the remains match the body parts months ago
in another three years with another crisis in the vrsc. the secretary clinton, ambassador riesch, undersecretary for political affairs and ambassador windy sherman high and -- and i have all met with an spoken with the rwandan and rwanda and officials in the past few weeks for a rapid and peaceful resolution to the crisis. i have travelled to the region just last month with my british and french counterparts to press the condoleezza, rwanda in, and ugandan governments to work together and start the crisis and address the causes of instability. and all three governments reiterated to us their shared goals -- their share gold -- shared goals. all three indicated to was that the most abusive commanders are now under targeted sanctions and we have placed those same individuals under u.s. sanctions. talks between the garcia government and the environment -- m 23 began on december 29 in uganda and are being mediated with uganda as the chair on the international conference of the great lakes region known as the i c g lra. as the two sides begin substantive con -- talks, the current ceas
incompetence what can you get fired over. >> clayton: hillary clinton is out with a concussion and could be senator john kerry going through the approval process x. we'll not have a approval process until we hear from secretary clinton. >> she said publicly she took responsibility . what are you doing to be accountable for the failure. the question is what did she know. did she know he was in danger or putting himself in danger. both roads lead back to her. they are critical to understanding the larger failures. >>> and the u.s. army is heading to africa . parts of the countries where we are seeing extremist growth. they are expanding in libya and mali and nigeria and turkey. this is an effort to make sure they are trainned extremist. it shows that al-qaida is not really defeated but emboldened. >> i ran an operating base. these are the same target and that tells me al-qaida is coming back . it was designed to be a soft power of command and stated to have no combat of power. we had a conference on my think tank know had a conference and people recognized the problem is. you have no comba
politics the most, former president bill clinton. >> there's not a close second, is there? >> yeah, there might be. >> that campaign -- >> yep. just a few weeks after holding court at the democratic national convention, the former president kicked off his annual clinton global initiative conference in new york city. >> mika and i sat down with the president at the site of the cgi meeting on the same day that both president obama and mitt romney were set to speak there. >> how would you characterize how he's been handling the collective problems that we're seeing percolating across the middle east? >> well, i think that first of all, i think they've done pretty well in a very chaotic situation. the arab spring was always going to have ups and downs or bumps in the road or whatever you want to call it. in libya, the tragic situation of the lost of our ambassador and the other americans, it's worth pointing out a couple of things. first of all, most of the libyan people who were aware of what's going on like the united states, they like the fact that we aggressively supported them and
. the current debate is different, do not forget. after having surpluses at the end of the clinton administration, we went into debt almost a decade ago -- deficits almost a decade ago. the problems have gotten more difficult. at the moment, we have some interesting changes. you talk about 30 years since reagan. the country is getting older, so medicare, medicaid, social security costs more, but we have also had a lot of tax cuts. revenue is at the smallest amount since 1950. if we just got revenue back up to historical average, a deficit would be about $500 billion less than a career that is. the problem with that much more smaller. economists would then say that it is not much of a problem. the history is rather sordid, you are right. host: let me go to "the national journal." three reasons why mitch mcconnell will not save the fiscal cliff negotiations. the first one, most importantly, he is missing his dance partner joe biden. he has been kept on the sidelines during negotiations. some republicans think his absence is a sign that the president is not serious about closing a dea
will be enforced but not before giving the public a chance to weigh in. in 1993, president clinton called executive order to call on agencies to provide minimum of 60 days for public input. three new proposed regulation for obamacare assigned 30 days and will get 24. with the comment period set to end in the week between christmas and new year's. one of the regulation runs more than 400 pages. regulatory experts say it creates nearly impossible task. fully vetting the proposal and submitting in-depth comment by the deadline. >> very few people are aware that the regulatory process allows for public to comment. because of that, a lot of the agencies work in secret. >> americans for limited government sent letters to the administration asking why it's flagrantly ignoring the appropriate comment period. expressing concern about the large number of new regulatory actions that are being undertaken by the administration since the november election. the department of health and human services tells us "governors, insurers an other partners encourage us to finance roles as soon as possible and we will cont
it even more challenging for us. >> outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, who says that she's leaving, she wants to just rest, spend time with family and relax a bit, because she's been on quite the treadmill, is she resting up for a run in 2016? >> well, she's the only one who can make that decision. but i will tell you this, and i have known the clintons for a long time. i don't think there's anyone who's ever been as well prepared or better suited by temperament to be president of the united states than secretary clinton. if you think of her entire life, and she's a little bit younger than me, and she's had some great experiences. she was the first lady of arkansas, so she knows state and local politics. and she was a lawyer in a top-flight firm in arkansas, so she knows business law. and she knows the problems of business. first lady in the white house for eight years so she's seen all the domestic and foreign policy stuff from the inside. and then senator and she knows electoral politics, and she knows the country. and secretary of state, she traveled a lot as first lad
, eisenhower, j.f.k., clinton, they all had unfairs. what do you say to that? >> well, i don't think the idea -- the problem is that general petraeus had an affair. i think the idea and the big problem is that he was director of the cia and he walked into right into one of the most blackmailable situations you can have. it's good the u.s. found out about it before the russians or chinese. it's not that he's a general messing around, and according to the code of the justice that's not allowed. >> teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff with just 36 days to go until tax increases kick, in the white house and congress are playing a high stakes game of let's make a deal. >> only in america believes there has to be this what i believe to be really farce ical now surely -- the nature of the world is very fast moving, america has huge economic problems, heading for another fiscal cliff, everyone laughing at you from afenway park the american public sick and tired of all the games going on and there are you, grover norquist, a very bright guy still resolutely saying a pledge is a pledge is a pledge
presidents, president clinton, bush and obama said that nuclear iran is unacceptable. if the iranians are allowed to walk across that threshold with no opposition, that would demonstrat demonstrates other would-be regimes that-- >> is this the year for the showdown on iran? >> simply as a matter of industrial mechanics, how much uranium you need to enrich to get to a bomb this is the year. >> paul: we've been saying that for a while and somehow there's a computer virus that happens that keeps kicking it down. but it's not an ever receding horizon and the international atomic energy looks at iran as nuclear some piles, how much they have and how deeply -- look, you saw benjamin netanyahu at the u.n. in september draw literally a red line and they've come to consensus grew late in the spring of 2013 you're going to have that threshold. >> paul: matt, you've been the optimist in our group on the arab spring and made a strong case for it particularly after the dictatorships for so many decades in that part of the world. give us some reason to think that this could turn out better than it
clinton, we'll never know whether she could be a consequential great secretary of state because the presidential essentially dominates. he does not delegate. and the reality is both at state and defense, the interesting question will be it seems to me on whether or not in the second term the president will allow his national security team to actually help shape the policy that the president validates and authorizes. >> that is a very interesting point. i had not heard that before. i have heard other things that make me think differently about the independence of state in this administration, but one of the things i think is also at stake in the haguele discussion is the kind of amazing enduring power of neo conservativism in washington d.c. long, long, long after it should have been really definitively discredited as a conception of the world. it is remarkable, the washington post editorial board, a key sounding board to this world view, is going after hagel, again, going after hagel in ways to make me like chuck hagel who i did not have strong feelings about prior to going afte
secretary clinton agreed to meet with the russian foreign minister and rahim my, the u.n. ambassador for the syrian issue, the syrian dossier. if the regime uses chemical weapons or any weapons of mass destruction, the regime in syria, that is definitely an indication that it is a last act of desperation. melissa: yeah. >> i'm sure that the international community will try to prevent that in any way, shape or form. the syrian, the russian president, putin, a couple of days ago when he was in turkey, he gave some signals that the chemical weapons in syria are secure. so now i think we need to sit down with the russians to see if they have any guaranties to the security of these weapons. >> talked about how the international community could try to prevent this and there are two weapons we really have. there are weapons weapons and there is money. is there anything, what could we do at this point to try to stop this from happening? >> well i think, you know, the regime of syria has these weapons. i'm not sure they will sell them or if we put some money on the table that will solve this.
the political hero should be hillary clinton. host: why is that? caller: she has kept peace around the world. she has been able to focus on the problems here in america while she is done a tremendous job overseas. host: what would you like to see out of there? caller: become the next president of united states. i think it is a strong possibility. you mentioned travel and keeping people safe. any specific accomplishment that sticks out in your mind? caller: meeting with the pakistanis leaders and going to different countries and dealing with the world issues and being a good negotiator, peacemaker and her demeanor. unbelievable and outstanding. host: ruth from texas, you are on. caller: my hero is mitt romney. if he had been elected, he would have strained things much better than they are now. that is part of the problem. host: what -- caller: character, honesty. host: mitt romney is your choice. caller: that is about it. host: patrick is next. caller: my political hero is president obama. host: why so? caller: he has gone through a lot. he has kept his cool during the course of the year. i l
ronald reagan and bill clinton cut spending. i would take the clinton tax rates, right now, i would take them. gregg: really. >> they won't hurt the economy, if, i got clinton's spending. he spent one-third less on federal government than barack obama is today, one-third less. we've increased the size of the government by over 33%. gregg:er hereby announce you king for a day. you're it. >> oh, please. but that's it. we're spending too much and the only way to afford this kind of spending is to tax everyone. and that's what i'm worried about. we're moving toward a value-added tax. gregg: brian wesbury, good to see you. thanks so much. >> good to see you, gregg. patti ann: greg says he can have the power. can i be queen? gregg: you may. >> this is great story. a man loses a ring on the highway and another person finds it. he is looking for the rightful owner. i hope you're watching! we'll tell you how you can help coming up. >>> a touching story of a fifth grader and how he decided to honor the victims in newtown, connecticut. >> when i heard about sandy hook i felt really bad for all the
and bill clinton can love it too. in "unthinkable" did the issue of torture become part of the debate? >> that's what it was. it was about taking the ticking clock scenario you're familiar with. the idea a man has put four nuke bombs on american soil, how far do you go to get it out of him? what are the lines you're prepared to go up to or beyond in order to to save the entire united states of america or everyone in it or do you have to negotiate with this man's human rights? so the film was a dramization of that. and again very difficult to read what the politics of it were. you can watch the entire film and again everyone has their own view of it and being the man who -- actually the film is about a cr i aagent who is working in iraq disappears and nobody knows where he is. he hops up in a mall in america and gives himself up and when he's brought in he says that he's converted to become a muslim and has put these bombs around the place. then sam jackson's character comes in and using torture and the whole film is about me being tortured by sam jackson and pushing you to see how far
or not. the memorial service for byrd in west virginia, this is where clinton said there is nothing he would not have done for you, meaning the people of west virginia as long as you did not cross the constitutional line. a powerful statement. clinton picked up on byrd perfectly. one of the administration i talked about is the carter administration. when you look at byrd's work with president carter, you realize how much legislation is accomplished in those congresses. it was incredible. carter's failures are basically external. oil and cargo driving up inflation are beyond carter's control. three mile island. but what carter and byrd did -- carter was a difficult person, but they were able to bring together. it was a truly successful administration legislatively. two cabinets were formed. the most important environmental laws we have today came out of the carter administration. carter enacted an energy program, which if reagan had not wiped out come would have saved us the problems you are having today. the synthetic fuels corporation . two million by 1995, but reagan wiped it out. ir
experience here. i am the guy that negotiated the child safety lock arrangement with bill clinton. there are things we can do and do now rather than debate endlessly over the things that divide us instead of moving forward on the many things that we're already in agreement on. >> you were -- when you worked for the nra, you were its political director. >> regional political director. >> regardless, you knew a lot about its clout in politics. do you in all candor think that the nra has the kind of clout it did back in the '90s when were you involved in those really high-proo file debates, for like safety locks, assault bans and so on. >> when i did the chaft safety lo locks, i was representing the nra. it's not about clout. what the nra does so well is organize and motivate their people to get out in elections. arguing against what they do, you are arguing against democracy. we're in this fight together, instead of dwighting america, let's come together for a change. we can. >> i want to talk a little more about the proposal that wayne la pierre made too put armed police officers i
.6 in the clinton administration from 35% now but taxes will also go up for tax rates would go up for lower-income earners. the maximum lowest rate reverting to 15% from 10% and for investors capital gains rates would revert to 20% from 15% and depending on the analysis the average family would pay 2,000 to $4,000 more in taxes next year. dennis: quick follow-up. in terms of profitmaking in washington is now officially impossible to get a fix in place by december 31st? is it impossible? peter: it is not impossible. you are probably referring to this three day period that the house requires for reading legislation. in theory if the senate did something by friday, they would have saturday, sunday and the house could vote on monday, but if we got into pingpong, good luck with that. dennis: thank you very much. shibani: christmas miracles can happen. snow and wicked wind preventing thousands from flying home this christmas. join me live in the weather center as the storm moves towards the northeast. watch out for that. dennis: less miserables winning bid at the box office. we will tell you abou
is it enough? what should that 40% share be from the top 1%? >> the clinton rate was 39%. dennis: share of tax dollars. >> overall share, how do you measure that? the fact is you equate in terms of wealth as opposed to income is even greater. a small percentage of americans own all the wealth. i thought you were talking about marginal tax rates. if it was marginal tax rates we're doing fine -- dennis: the bottom half of earners pay zero federal income-tax. they pay sales taxes and% income-tax. [talking over each other] >> they pay less than nothing because we get earned income tax credit. dennis: all right, sounds good to me. [talking over each other] dennis: we will cut you down. shibani: the fiscal cliff survival kit is here. the market's jump in and fiscal cliff years. what should you do to protect your money, your portfolio, your sanity, your 401(k)? joining us is president and ceo of shaver asset management dan shaffer. good to have you on this friday, big day for the market. all these talks, i noticed movement in bond prices. in the currency market, what is your technical analysis tellin
.6 from the clinton administration from 35% now but taxes would also go up for lower income earners. the maximum low rate would revert back to 15% from 10% now. the for investors, capital gains rates would revert to 20% from 15% now. depending on the analysis, the average family would pay 2,000 to 4 thou more in taxes next year. back to you guys. tracy: peter we were talking about the protocol. you sent a great little ted it about. you have to explain it to the viewers. the house makes these rules, three day rule everyone gets opportunity to read but the house has the opportunity to throw them out of the window. >> that's right. the house can waive its rules so they can waive the three-day rule, but, also the three days isn't 72 hours now. it is like, it's three calendar days. if they post it one minute before midnight on one day, then have it for 24 hours for day two, they can post it for one men on day three, that apparently now counts as three-day rule. so 24 hours and two minutes. tracy: it's a joke. sound like my house. i make up the ruse as they go. lori: whatever, mom. tracy:
clinton was president, this topic in my view has never gotten the attention it deserves. it has been treated too much as a technical topic. not as a fundamental topic about the relations of the state's. in my experience, i always say the chinese leadership, the most distinctive characteristic is they are systematically opened. that is to say the modus operandi is on a particular topic, let's look for the best ideas throughout the world, bring them back, study them, and then customize them as appropriate for our own system. and yet in this one respect, they have been a little bit slow. we had this conversation 10 years ago. now, i will stick my neck out and say for a variety of reasons, some of which are circumstantial, some of which have to do with the leadership in the standing committee come i believe that this topic will have to become an a more important topic. and that will be treated as all things are in china, top down. the truth is, fundamentals are not going to change unless there is a top down decision. so, in addition to that, i remember having a conversation with one of t
? why did obama or hillary clinton get on the phone and call the president of libya and say, "you owe us. san whenever you have to save our people." i believe the local forces went in after it was over and our people were dead. to didn't somebody jawbone, get them in there to help? host: you can talk about any topic you like. joel florida, what is on your mind. caller: you were talking about afghanistan. one of the main reasons we are over there is to keep the poppy plants growing. host: what brings you to that opinion? caller: just research that i do online. host: how do you think things are going to work effort with the troupe drawdown? caller: anybody's guess. host: alright. sharon from california. caller: in 2013, there is a movement coming to washington, d.c., about systemic corruption in our judicial system. a gentleman is with wallace america -- lawless america. he has been documented people from family court to civil cases where politics are taking precedence over the law. perjury is rampant. there is a movement coming. we want to see the constitution restored and i hope that is
